Hear Chester Bennington On Grey Daze’s Re-Recorded “Sometimes”


Grey Daze have launched “Sometimes” as the third single from their forthcoming album “Amends“. The group, who notably featured Chester Bennington on vocals prior to his rise to fame in Linkin Park, went back and re-record and rework their 90s records with Bennington for the album. To that end they also enlisted a number of his friends and family to give them a new life.

These songs were written around Bennington‘s original vocal tracks. Bennington himself had reunited with the outfit prior to taking his own life in July of 2017.

Speaking of this latest single, which Bennington wrote at the age of 18 and later recorded when he was 21-years-old, Grey Daze drummer Sean Dowdell offered:

“…I’ve said this in prior interviews but this is one of those songs that when I hear it now, I recognize the pain Chester was living with even more acutely now that I’m an adult. As so many of Chester’s lyrics do, this message in this song, that bad things happen and there things will get better, resonates in an entirely different way with the current crisis we are all living through, and brings a message of hope.”

Amends” was recently delayed to a June 26th release date amid Coronavirus concerns. Guest artists brought in to help flesh out the album included Brian “Head” Welch & James “Munky” Shaffer of Korn, Page Hamilton of Helmet, Jasen Rauch of Breaking Benjamin, Chris Traynor of Bush, Ryan Shuck of Julien-K/Adema fame and LP. Bennington‘s son Jaime also made a cameo.
